That’s why we’ve engineered Opus for maximum impact across an extended range of weights and finishes. The perfect balance of shade and brightness makes your brand jump off the page. Opus also has tighter tolerance standards than any of its competitors—and when your canvas is consistent, what you print stays consistent. Opus always delivers striking, reliable performance to meet the needs of any integrated marketing campaign.
Opus offers the broadest range of weights and finishes across sheet, web and digital formats. The family tree includes Opus PS, a solution optimized for direct mail—with superior glueability, fold-ability and caliper guarantees for predictable postage costs—and Opus Digital, which is optimized to perform across digital printing platforms. With unrivaled versatility, Opus delivers the right impression on multiple touchpoints.
Think of Opus as the happy marriage of opposites. On one side, shade determines how evenly light reflects from a surface. A neutral shade provides a full, balanced gamut of light, which can come at the cost of crisp, intense color. On the other side, brightness gives vibrancy and pop, but this can come at the cost of shifting some pastels and warmer tones to a bluer shade. Opus perfectly balances the two, delivering a full range of dynamic color—the perfect marriage to make your brand look its best.
Opus has the tightest tolerance standards of any premium paper in its category, delivering minimal variability within and across runs. Nothing else in the industry even comes close. Now that inspires confidence.

A gloss finish provides high image intensity and crispness that makes it feel like your brand is jumping off the page. One watch out: the ultra smooth surface of gloss tends to create glare, which can make long-form content difficult to consume.
Both sleek and almost polished to the touch, gloss finishes give audiences a sense of stylish quality.
A dull finish exudes sophistication and refinement. Good ink hold-out allows for a true dot, low bleed and low absorption into the paper. Dull finishes also offer high readability and create soft, rich images that add a sense of warmth and familiarity.
With a proprietary micro-embossed surface, our dull finish provides a smooth, uniform experience that feels both cultivated and inviting.
The purposeful ruggedness of matte finishes exhibits authenticity and understated confidence. Inks absorb more into the paper, which softens the dot for a less intense image. This reduces glare, maximizes readability and gives you the look and feel of an uncoated sheet with the quality of coated. Matte surfaces also offer great write-ability.
Matte finishes result in a textured and topographic surface, with a soft “toothiness” that creates earthy, accessible tactility audiences can feel.
A satin finish provides a crisp, low glare background for text while offering sharp contrast and snap for printed pages. Its superior readability and vivid color lends an air of relaxed intimacy perfectly suited to accessible brands.
Similar to dull, satin finishes offer uniform tactility that feels luxurious and approachable.
